People hear the word “autism” and automatically assume that means they are incapable of having a future. This is so far from the truth, there are so many artists, authors, and scientists on the autism spectrum that are extremely successful. I know first hand that people on the spectrum are some of the smartest and most diligent people I know.
My goal in this project is to get rid of the negative connotation about autism and to show how incredible everyone is. I also hope to just encourage people to be nice to everyone because you never really know what is going on in someone’s life so it can’t hurt to just be nice.
Global Goals: the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
I feel that my beautiful question mostly relates to reduced inequalities because of the SDG target 10.2
“Promote universal social, political and economic inclusion.”
This has to do with equality for all even those who are differently-abled such as those on the autism spectrum.
BE NICE TO PEOPLE.
You never really know what anyone is going through, so it is better off just to treat others how you want to be treated. My call to action is mainly just for everyone to think before they speak and say anything that might hurt someone’s feelings. I also believe that people should educate themselves on disorders such as autism just to be more aware and to know that it doesn’t mean a person is hopeless, just that it might take them a couple of tries to get to the same place that you are.
